The EGL from SCHUNK is an extremely compact and powerful servo gripper. It has flexible control of gripping force, speed, and position, which makes it well suited for pharmaceutical, testing, laboratory, and assembly applications.


The EGL has on-board power and control electronics so there are no other external devices needed to operate the gripper. It is powered by 24 VDC and can communicate by Profibus-DP or CAN-bus. There is an electric brake which allows for position maintenance and a pseudo absolute encoder function.
Standard industrial connectors allow for quick and easy setup and installation.

The EGL weighs just 1.8 kg, but it can generate up to 600 N of grip force which allows it to easily grip work pieces weighing 3 kg. This power to weight ratio combined with a stroke of 49 mm per jaw, makes the EGL one of the most powerful and flexible servo grippers on the market.

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction.
